Square Of The Week, Bohemian For A Blanket

Inspired by PBS’S CREATE CHANNEL, Knit And Crochet Now at the end of the show, square of the week.  Each week Brett Bara would demonstrate a new square of the week for a square sample blanket.  This bohemian blanket with my version of a granny square stitch will be for my bed soon.  With bohemian making a big comeback and mom painting my bedroom red, I wanted to transform my bedroom into a tropical bohemian bedroom oasis.  This square represents some of the great colors that are in bohemian style.  Granny square has an open stitch that allows you to not feel super warm, but warm enough to take the cold edge off. 

I realized when making blankets for laps and beds, it’s easier to start off with a small square and turning that small square into something big.  I also realized with squares you can sew them together as well.  I’m not the greatest sewer, but I’m learning as I go.  See this blanket come alive this summer.

Hello Fall

It’s official, Fall is actually here.  Leaves changing colors, shorter days, colder days, wearing layers of clothing, and bundling up with some new scarves by Lauren at Where’s The Yarn?  I’ve currently working on new scarves for Sow’s Ear Studio and my Etsy shop.  All scarves are $45/each.  Scarves are made with yarn of all kinds including soft wool, cotton yarn, and worsted yarn.  Each scarf will have a different kind of stitch.  Stitches include single crochet stitch, half double crochet stitch, slip stitch, and other various types of stitches that I’m learning about along the way.  I’m also adding some fringe and fancy edges to my scarves when they’re completed. All scarves are machine washable and can be placed in the dryer on low heat. Buy an early holiday gift with a handmade scarf with my “BLACK FRIDAY SALE” on Thursday November 24th-December 11th, 2016.

My other goal is to not buy anymore yarn until the yarn I currently have is all used up.  No more buying yarn at Michaels and Herrschners.  My two favorite places to purchase yarn and burn a hole in my pocket.  I’ve got so much yarn to work with, I need to create some new designs for home and wearing.

Every time I see a new color of yarn, I always think of what I can make with it.  Well now I’ve decided to just create some new things with what I’ve got and then when I start to run low on my current yarn inventory, I’ll start to buy more.  Until then, you’ll see all the yarn that I currently have both at home and at Sow’s Ear Studio.  Both of these scarves will be added to my Etsy shop on November 1st, 2016.

Slip Stitch Used For Many Things

I’ve been crocheting since 2009 and learned only one stitch.  A simple single stitch. As time has gone by, I’ve decided to experiment with new stitches and techniques.  For example, I started this lovely nature scarf with a simple slip stitch.

A stitch that’s not lace, it’s closed.  With the slip stitch on this scarf, the stitches look big, loose, but the stitches are close enough to keep you warm during the long cold months.  I’m working on more blankets, scraves, fingerless gloves, and much more with this delightful stitch.

 

More Scrunchies On The Way

If there’s one thing that I learned that’s quick and easy to produce and makes a great gift, that’s my small and large scrunchies.  All scruchies are made with a hair elastic band, cotton yarn, and a small crochet hook.  This keeps the stitches together so you don’t see the elastic band.  Scrunchies can be found on http://laurenprock.biz at $7.50 each. Remember, shipping is free on my Etsy shop as well.

All items in my shop take 1-2 weeks to deliver, so if you need a scrunchie or anything else from my shop, be sure to order your item(s) fast.  This scrunchie is made with Premier Yarn Cotton Flair in aqua ice.  I love these scrunchies because the stitches are wrapped around the elastic band, working with the stitches doesn’t make the scrunchie look so big, and I make a fancy fringe when completing the scrunchie.

Scrunchies are great for girls with long hair, doing everyday activities, cooking, working in a restaurant, and want to keep their hair pulled back during long summer days.

These wonderful hair pieces also make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas, along with any other holiday, birthday, etc.  I have a total of twenty three scrunchies in my shop, so if you need more then one, there’s plenty.  Make one of these scrunchies a part of your hair collection today from my Etsy shop.
